This product is sold out

How do witchery phenomena and practices manifest within cultural, economical, political, religious, and scientific spaces in Africa and beyond? This publication is a compendium to the exhibition project and public program of The Incantation of the Disquieting Muse... exhibition, curated by Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung and Elena Agudio at SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin, in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut South Africa. Through the exhibition and a series of invocations, the project considered witchery as an epistemological space and a medium of continuities between the African continent and its Diaspora, deliberating around concepts of the supranatural beyond Western misconceptions. 

The publication includes essays by Erna Brodber, Seloua Luste Boulbina, Vladimir Lucien, Percy Mabandu, and Greg Tate a.o, and visual contributions by artists Georges Adéagbo, Haris Epaminonda, Kiluanji Kia Henda, Emeka Ogboh, Priscilla Rezende and Minnette Vari a.o.
